1952: 'I've Got a Secret' Premieres
June 19, 2019  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment
 
One secret about the long-running game show I've Got a Secret — which debuted today in 1952 — is that it was co-created by Allan Sherman of "Hello, Muddah" fame.

Another is that this lightest of formats was staffed by one of the sharpest and funniest of celebrity panels, including lengthy stints by Bill Cullen and Steve Allen (both of whom ended up hosting), Faye Emerson, Jayne Meadows, Henry Morgan, Bess Myerson, and Betsy Palmer.

Garry Moore hosted for the first dozen years, then quit this series and The Garry Moore Show at the same time — Moore or less.

6/19/18-Episode yesterday on Buzzer featured Wally Cox in a segment,along with Bill Cullen & Henry Morgan on the panel. as screwy as the set up was,the panel guessed Wally's reason to visit in four questions. commercials included so I saw the difference with regular Toni home permanent and the new (circa 1960) softer Toni. Now I know. Puns,ad libs and light hearted banter as these guys really knew how to keep the conversation rolling.
